A. General Instructions

1. Manuscripts must be written in English (more preferable) or Indonesian (less preferable)

2. Manuscripts must be prepared in MS Word, minimum 5000 words or 10 A4 pages and maximum 10000 words or 25 A4 pages with 1.5 spaces (no attachment), using Bell MT type font size 10p.

3. Manuscripts should have abstracts with 100-250 words and maximum five (5) keywords representing the manuscript. For manuscript written in Indonesian should include abstract in English.

4. The first page should display the title, abstract, the keywords.

5. Manuscripts with more than one author should display names in order of their contribution.

6. Manuscripts should be divided into clearly defined and numbered sections. Sections should be numbered I, II, etc. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line.

7. Follow this order when typing manuscripts: Title, Authors, Affiliations, Abstract, Keywords, Main Paper (including figures and tables), References, and no attachment.

8. When Romanization or other foreign languages are needed, the first word of proper nouns, such as names of people and geographical locations, must begin with a capital letter. And, the abbreviation of names of groups and organizations must be written in all capital letters.

9. Terms, units, names of people, and technology must maintain consistency throughout the whole manuscript.

B. Tables and Figures

1. Prepare tables in Times New Roman. Type title 10 points, type body 10 points.

2. Tables and figures must be numbered with Arabic numerals.

3. All tables should be numbered with Arabic numerals. Headings should be placed above tables, left-justified. Leave one-line space between the heading and the table. Only horizontal lines should be used within a table, to distinguish the column headings from the body of the table, and immediately above and below the table. Tables must be embedded in the text and not supplied separately. Table 1 is an example which authors may find useful.

4. Title of the table is placed immediately above the table.

5. Title of the figure is placed immediately below the figure.

6. Note(s) and Source(s) are placed below the table and figure.

Example for the table:

Table 1 Example for a table, use 8 pt of font size (table and caption located at the middle of the body paper)


Example for Figure:

Figure 1 Example for figure, use 8 pt of font size (table and caption located at the top figure)

C. Equations and Formulae

Equations and formulae should be typed and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in parentheses on the right-hand side of the page (if referred to explicitly in the text), as in Eq. (1).



They should also be separated from the surrounding text by one space. Equations should be edited by Microsoft equation, not in the text or graphics versions.
